Announcements 1/31

Things are starting to come together in class as we prepare for the numerous performances of the Spring. That's what makes this semester so exciting! We have more than a field show and a Christmas concert - we have the Ensemble concert, Solo and Ensemble, honor bands, Jazz Band, a performance in New York, the Spring Concert, Basketball games, parades, Concert Festival, and for the first time, the Graduation ceremony. It's going to be a busy, but productive, semester.
1) The Booster meeting has been pushed to next Tuesday, February 7 at 6:30 because I will be out of town for All-West Honor Band this Thursday.
2) The Butter Braid fundraiser will begin next week. This will be our last major fundraiser for a while, so please sell what you can even if you are not going to New York, because we need to start preparing for next year already.
3) If you are still on the fence about going to New York, please make your decision. We are coming up on some major cancellation deadlines, and we also need to finalize room assignments and bus assignments.
4) The ensemble concert will be February 23 at 7 pm in the Cafetorium. All students in class have at least one performance in this concert. This is a chance for them to play in smaller ensembles (and even solos) with music that they choose. It is a throwback to the Chamber music days of long ago....
